U-brush can be described as a “toothbrush” of the umbrella as its internal wiper rod can easily wipe off most of the water on the surface of umbrella. The design of U-brush is to place any sizes of umbrellas into U-brush while users walk by. It can prevent users from getting wet, as well as avoiding the danger of slippery ground. U-Brush is a see-through installation that emphases the sense of rain by raindrops falls down along the wiper, moreover raindrops will water the aquatic plants that place at the bottom of U-brush. U-Brush has a pleasant appearance that makes people more willing to use and also reduce the depressions of raining day.
